Greenbone Vulnerability Management (GVM) 10
OpenVAS with version 10 has been renamed in Greenbone Vulnerability Management and it is available in community repository starting from Alpine 3.10.
This How-To will guide you to install a complete server solution for vulnerability scanning and vulnerability management solution.
Enable/Add Community repository:
OpenVAS relies on Redis. Redis should be configured to listen to a socket.
Modify /etc/redis.conf by setting :
unixsocket /tmp/redis.sock unixsocketperm 700 port 0
Then start redis and add it to default runlevel:
rc-service redis start rc-update add redis
Greenbone Vulnerability Manager
Upgrade the NVT (Network Vulnerability Tests) archives:
greenbone-nvt-sync greenbone-scapdata-sync --rsync greenbone-certdata-sync
Be patient...it will take a while. If you get these errors:
rsync: failed to connect to feed.openvas.org (184.108.40.206): Connection refused (111) rsync: failed to connect to feed.openvas.org (2a01:130:2000:127::d1): Network unreachable (101) rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(127) [Receiver=3.1.3]
then try to append --rsync arg, like:
Now, generate the certificate for gvmd.
The certificate infrastructure enables OpenVAS daemons to communicate in a secure manner and is used for authentication and authorization before establishing TLS connections between the daemons. You can setup the certificate automatically with:
Create a new user with Admin role, and take note of the generated password:
gvmd --create-user=admin --role=Admin
User created with password '18664575-7101-4ceb-8a94-429a376824e6
Note: if you want to change the password you can run:
gvmd --user=admin --new-password=MyNewVeryStrongPassword
Start Greenbone Vulnerability Manager and add it to default runlevel
rc-service gvmd start
This will take a while, since OpenVAS here is rebuilding his database with all NVT definition downloaded. You will see with ```ps aux``` the gvmd process in "Syncing SCAP" state.
rc-service gvmd restart rc-update add gvmd
Generate the OpenVAS Scanner cache:
rc-service openvassd stop rc-service openvassd create_cache rc-service openvassd start
Add the OpenVAS services to default runlevel:
rc-update add openvassd
Greenbone Security Assistant (GSAD)
Configure Greenbone Security Assistant (GSAD) to listen to other interfaces rather than localhost only, so it is reachable from other hosts.
Modify /etc/conf.d/gsad: with:
Or, in one shot:
sed -i -e "s/127\.0\.0\.1/0\.0\.0\.0/g" /etc/conf.d/gsad
Start GSAD and add it to default runlevel:
rc-service gsad start rc-update add gsad
Open the browser at the IP address where GSAD is running, on port 9392, and login with the credentials previously created.
Happy vulnerability assestment!
Configure Trusted NVTs
"Signed NVTs are usually provided by NVT Feed Services. For example, the NVTs contained in the OpenVAS NVT Feed are signed by the "OpenVAS Transfer Integrity" key which you can find at the bottom of this page. If you have already installed OpenVAS, you can use the "greenbone-nvt-sync" command to synchronize your NVT collection with the OpenVAS NVT Feed and receive signatures for all NVTs."
gpg --homedir=/etc/openvas/gnupg --gen-key
You need to choose Realname, Email and a Password. Example:
Realname: openvas Email: openvas@localhost Password: admin
Add a certificate to OpenVAS Scanner Keyring
Add the OpenVAS scanner Integrity Key:
wget https://www.greenbone.net/GBCommunitySigningKey.asc gpg --homedir=/etc/openvas/gnupg --import GBCommunitySigningKey.asc
To mark a certificate as trusted for your purpose, you have to sign it. The preferred way is to use local signatures that remain only in the keyring of your OpenVAS Scanner installation.
To finally sign a certificate you need to know its KEY_ID.
You either get it from the table at the bottom or via a "list-keys" command.
Then you can locally sign:
gpg --homedir=/etc/openvas/gnupg --list-keys gpg --homedir=/etc/openvas/gnupg --lsign-key KEY_ID
For example, to express your trust in the OpenVAS Transfer Integrity you imported above, you could use the following command:
gpg --homedir=/etc/openvas/gnupg --lsign-key 0ED1E580
Before signing you should be absolutely sure that you are signing the correct certificate. You may use its fingerprint and other methods to convince yourself.
To enable NVT signing on openvassd:
sed -i -e "s/nasl_no_signature_check.*/nasl_no_signature_check = no/g" /etc/openvas/openvassd.conf
As last step, restart openvassd service:
rc-service openvassd restart
